day lobbying congress. every $1 spent on lobbying is equivalent to $30 worth of tax breaks that they get from the american people. and finally where did the money go? it went largely to romney any way. was it worth it for $720,000? romney got $4.7 million from the oil cop. the republicans win any way. and we all lose because we're right now in the middle of climate change, and we don't have any politicians or almost any media who give a dam or plan to do anything about it. that's unfortunately the cold, hard reality. all right now when we come back we got a lot more for you on the storm. in fact, here is the view of new york. the flooding has begun. just ignore it because oil companies will make it all better. the answer to more drilling. and then bill clinton campaigning for president obama and how is it going to work? we'll have the numbers in ohio for you which are critical to the election. >> let's give the job to the man who has done the job so he can finish the job. >> cenk: yeah, 50/50. not so much. all right later in the program you'll enjoy this. a he will elbow on
